Biggest Monthly Tournament Weekend on PKR Once Again Proves a Huge Draw

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - April 14, 2011) - Online poker room PKR rolled out their two biggest tournaments of the month last weekend, and Italian player FruttAllin grabbed a Main Event win while long-time PKR player PirateNation took down the PKR Masters.

In the Main Event FruttAllin entered the final table sixth in chips and steadily increased his stack as others feel by the wayside. In a final showdown with Kolleif, FruttAllin's 7-7 outdrew an A-J hand for a hard earned victory. The $6,694.79 first prize is his biggest win to date on PKR. In all 1,046 players entered the two-day Main Event generating a £33,000 prizepool – far more than the tournament's $25,000 guarantee.

Saturday night's $100,000 guaranteed PKR Masters saw Londoner PirateNation hold his nerve to win his first PKR Masters title after failing to do so in two previous final table appearances. The $26,563 win takes him to third in the all time money list on the site with an impressive record of 388 tournament cashes.

PKR Marketing Director, Simon Prodger commented, "The first weekend of the month is always an exciting time on PKR – congratulations to both FruttAllin and PirateNation on their big wins!"

The next Main Event will take place on Sunday, 1 May at 20:00 GMT, while the PKR Masters will next run on Saturday, 30 April at also at 20:00 GMT.
